Over £2,000 was raised by the Soham Staploe Rotary Club as part of their annual fundraising efforts.
Up to 16 members helped earn the impressive amount outside Asda and Scampers in Soham, as well as at the Co-op store in Fordham across four days in December.
One of the receiving charities is Magpas, which club secretary Graham Smith said "we help in a very small way to provide some funds for them."
The club started fundraising for the charity seven years ago, with up to five collectors assisting on each of the four days.
"It is what we expect to raise, in fact, it is almost exactly the same as previous years," Mr Smith said.
The club's next major fundraising outing is the Soham Beer and Music Festival in July, but Mr Smith warned "we need more manpower".
